Hot Courts  


Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)

Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

Our annual New Year’s Day event will take place at Mills College on –- you guessed it – Tuesday, January 1, 2018. We’ll have a max of 20 players and a time frame of 11 AM til 2 PM. This is a great way to support most anyone’s new year’s resolution, whether it be more exercise, enhancing friendships, less TV binging, good food choices, etc.
 Expect to play hot courts format: 4 no-add games followed by a 7 point tie-breaker. Then anyone waiting rotates in. Depending on the number of participants, we could have a singles court going as well.
This event is FREE to anyone who has their membership paid up for 2018! It just takes a minute to click on Eventbrite to re-up your MTA membership. Even if you’re not planning to come, go ahead and PAY UP YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR 2018!
 Because the weather may thwart our plans, we have a PLAN B! Mary Blume’s home is in the neighborhood (657 Jean St) and we can gather there for socializing and games. Bring your favorite: Taboo, Scattegories, Trivial Pursuits, etc (cards provided for all you Hearts or Bridge players!) Fritz will no doubt have football games on the TV as well.
Of course, bring a pot luck offering. We’ll have the ice chest filled with non-alcoholic beverages.
Heidi Lerner or Mary Blume can field any questions you may have.
